This blog displays the photos of Jessica McConnell, university photographer, and William Atkins, photo editor. Please direct feedback or usage requests to Menachem Wecker.

Tim Pawlenty talks to GW College Republicans

Says William: "This photo was created by digitally stitching together three separate photos. Some panoramic photos from the late 19th/early 20th century were created using a camera in which the lens would travel the length of the film during the exposure. It was possible to be on one end of the photo then run around the camera and appear a second time in the same negative."
